TOP TIPS FOR OPERATORS

 

Supersweet Corn Facts

  • Hand picked in Florida from October through June

  •  Up to three times sweeter than traditional corn

  • Stays sweet longer because it’s bred to delay converting sugar to starch

  • Efficient system of super chilling and shipping within 24 hours after picking

  • Natural breeding—no GMOs

Ordering

  • Packed 48 ears to a crate

  • Can be ordered unhusked, or fully or partially husked

Handling

  • Chill immediately

  • Consider shucking ears to conserve space and keep kernels moist

Equivalents

  • 1 medium ear with husk = 10 to 14 ounces

  • 1 medium ear without husk = about 8 ounces

  • 1 medium ear = 3/4 cup kernels (4-1/4 ounces)

  • 1 crate (48 ears with husks) weighs approximately 40 pounds and yields 9 quarts (12-3/4 pounds) kernels
